Chang and Eng: A Messy American Dream

Description

Many of us have seen pictures of the original "Siamese Twins" Chang and Eng. But their story is so much more than a medical case study. Mo travels to Mount Airy, North Carolina - the inspiration for Andy Griffith's Mayberry and the real life home of the conjoined twins - to join the many descendants of Chang and Eng for their annual family reunion.

I am a descendant. I'm just not sure of the exact connection, except that it's on my father's side.

I am so grateful to you for your story. As a great-great-granddaughter of Chang, I am always delighted when someone shares their story. I grew up in Mt. Airy but did not know about my ancestry until I was in my teens. (Brig Gen Caleb Haynes was my great uncle on my dad's side). wish I had been there and could have met you. I have always enjoyed your work.
